Type 2 diabetic, no meds, sugars controlled by low-carb diet. 1 hr postprandial blood sugar 6.5, then at 2 hr mark DOWN to 3.5-4. WHY THE LOW DROP?
Diabetic: You are not diabetic, you have diabetes and should work to get rid of diabetes. With appropriate food intake and exercise you should gradually lower your blood sugar level to a point where your diabetes is no more. There are many easy to read articles focussing on blood sugar information. Let me know if you are not working towards no longer having diabetes. ...Read more
Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?
Look into Paleo : Your lab numbers suggest you're on the path to diabetes. Even though you don't eat "sugar" any fiber or starch that your body can digest turns into sugar and fruit juice is sugar. Even things like diary that is thought of as healthy has sugar (lactose is a type of sugar). A person with lab numbers like yours has to limit all sugars and heal the damage. The paleo approach can help you do both. ...Read more
Type 1 diabetic actively exercising & healthy eating looking for right lantus (insulin glargine) dose.
Lantus (insulin glargine) dose: Hi. I applaud you for your healthy lifestyle and dedication to tight diabetes control. Finding the right Lantus (insulin glargine) dose can be trickier than people think, especially for an active type 1. I was on Lantus (insulin glargine) for about 6 years before going on CGM in 2006. CGM is THE perfect way to find the right Lantus (insulin glargine) dose, but not everyone uses CGM yet. Do you? My guess is no, or you'd have dialed in the right Lant dose ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im an endomorph & im on a high protein diet, 1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight, 100-150g of good carbs & minimum fats, is this a gd diet plan?
Depends, Prob. Not: If your goal is to build body fat, then yes, otherwise no. Carbs block burning fat, so which are "good". Protein also stimulates Insulin release, Insulin promotes fat storage & high protein can drive higher kidney failure rates, so high questionable. Fats, of natural origin, best evidence of being healthy for humans. Study: "big fat lies", "science for smart people", dietdoctor, lustig, taubes... ...Read more
After eating 75 grams of carbs (french bread) on relatively empty stomach, 1 hour gluc level was 190. 2 hour gluc level was 127. Normal? Pre-Diab?
Probably normal: Hi. That is not a valid test. The OGTT uses 75 g liquid glucose; French bread is not an equivalent. And the OGTT uses serum glucose, not finger stick capillary glucose. You would also heed the fasting glucose, a standard part of an OGTT. Having said all that, your values could easily be normal. If you're worried, see your doc and do the REAL OGTT. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.
NOT healthy at all!: I have no idea what jacob's is but everything else your eating is bread/ starches. The healthiest diet (for both weight loss and good health) is to eat mostly vegetables & fruits with healthy protein and to minimize starch. You don't seem to be eating any veggies/fruit & eating mostly starch, the opposite of a healthy diet! My favorite diet is Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian- see http://bit.ly/1dHW9hT ...Read more

Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w
Short-term sugar OK: Secondary forms of diabetes (not the autoimmune insulin-requiring types), including the gestational type, are caused by cells become desensitized to insulin. This happens when Insulin levels are always high due to high sugar intake. It takes time; pregnancy just adds to the process. Three days of cake or girl scout cookies won't do anything if you weren't already heading that way. ...Read more
